Certas and Shell strengthen relationship

Sealing the deal Tony Stewart and Jon Huggett
Certas Energy and Shell Lubricants have announced a new five-year distribution contract that will see a strengthening of their collaboration supplying high quality lubricants across the UK, supported by technical expertise and logistical capabilities.
The two companies have been collaborating since 2004 and the new contract will bolster Certas Energy’s position as Shell’s largest contracted lubricants distributor in the UK. The move allows each partner to play to its strengths, and customers will continue to benefit from access to a quality, market-leading product portfolio and comprehensive wrap-around service that includes the widest possible coverage, swift and reliable packed, bulk and even same or next day deliveries.
“I am delighted to continue our relationship with Certas,” said Jon Huggett, Shell UK indirect sales manager.
Our distributors are trusted and approved ambassadors of Shell Lubricants and of the Shell brand in the UK, and have established strong technical, logistical and commercial expertise that they can offer customers.”
“We aim to be more than just a supplier to our customers,” added Certas Energy director, Tony Stewart.
“The combination of Shell’s quality lubricants and our technical and customer service capabilities provides our customers with a cost-competitive offering that gives them everything they need to keep moving. We are looking forward to continuing to work with Shell to provide access to a leading portfolio of lubrication products and services that will help drive standards across the industry.”
Although lubricants typically represent a small percentage of total running costs, selecting the right lubricant can help save significant costs and reduce inefficiencies. By working with a lubricant supplier that combines technical know-how with high levels of service, customers can be more confident in choosing the best products for their unique requirements.
